Rajon Rondo Will Join CSNNE’s Broadcast Team Monday



[Rajon] Rondo will serve as a guest analyst during the Celtics’ matchup with the Bulls on Monday, March 31.

He’ll join play-by-play voice Mike Gorman for the first quarter of CSNNE’s broadcast, with Cedric Maxwell substituting in for the final three quarters.

Rondo is available to join the broadcast because one of the current stipulations of his ongoing recovery from knee surgery is that he does not play back-to-back games.

I…honestly can’t tell if this is going to be the best or the worst thing to happen to a Celtics broadcast, but it’s going to be fascinating either way. Rondo can be terse in post-game interviews, but he can also be funny and insightful. One would assume he will be more the latter on Monday, since it’s an appearance he agreed to make, but we can’t be sure — he might just as easily make Mike Gorman’s job considerably more difficult than it has to be.

If he does, that sucks for Mike (who is low-key an incredibly good play-by-play guy), but can you imagine how entertaining a surly Rajon Rondo would be on a broadcast? Good lord.

Here’s what Brad Stevens had to say about his point guard taking over broadcast booth duties on Monday earlier tonight.

“I was approached about that, because he doesn’t play the second of back-to-backs — Mike actually approached me a couple weeks ago about it — and I think it’s great. I think he’s going to do a quarter or a half, or something like that. Should be good insight; he knows he can’t give too much insight. We’ll go over all the rules on Monday in pretty good detail. He’ll be really good. People will be really interested to hear what he has to say. I think it’s great that he’s interested in doing that. He’s a guy that, he understands the big picture of — right now he’s a professional basketball player, but in 10-12 years he won’t be. And so what does he do from there? These are all great opportunities for him to grow and maybe find something that down the road that he likes to do. We’ve talked about coaching, we’ve talked about things. I think it’s great when these guys start thinking like that and want to participate in things like that.”

    Celtics lose to the Raptors. Nearly came back from 15 down entering the 4th, but back to back 3′s late by the raptors finished it. Sullinger had a big game.
